Yes that is useful, and works quiet well.  Uses less code, so looks 
cleaner in the source.  Thanks for that.

But when it comes to something like this, can you really say <noscript> 
isn't needed?  I think I have an example you'd have to agree with, that 
<noscript> *is* needed here.


<script type='text/javascript'>
<!--
document.write("<p><a href='javascript:sword_enlarge()'><img 
src='thumb_sword.gif' alt='My Sword' /></a></p>");
//-->
</script>
<noscript><p><a href='sword.gif'><img src='thumb_sword.gif' alt='My 
Sword' /></a></p></noscript>

Have the full sized image in a fixed pop-up window when JavaScript is 
on, but oh my what ever shall we do if it's not on, simple.  Call the 
image in the same window with <noscript>
